    Eight man fronts...
    Expect to see lots of them unless we can pass our way out of them.

    I don't think you're wrong.

    Side Note: If you're acquainted with any Patriot fans or want to get to know one, I'd suggest using a conversation starter of "Boy, that Clete Blakeman sure is a great referee, huh?" and seeing where it goes from there.

    Coleman looked good.
    Norman and Benwikere would probably like do-overs.

    I could see that - and had the same thought at the time - but nobody really touched Tillman until he had the ball away from the receiver, so understand not calling him down.
    (that's apparently how the refs saw it)

    Probably should have mentioned that Graham Gano looked good last night too (as someone else pointed out). Ditto Brad Nortman.
    And hey, nobody ever mentions J Jonah Jansen.

    Can it be legitimately said that the receiver controlled the ball all the way to the ground?
    For it to be called a catch, he has to do that (remember Dez Bryant in the playoffs last year).

    He's not trolling.

    Was the Tillman 'interception' valid...
    ...or did we get away with one there?
    Possible outcomes for that play would have been a completion and down by contact, an incompletion or - as was called on the field - an interception.
    Quick Tip: Remember the Calvin Johnson rule.

    Lots of speculation that Brockel winds up on IR.

    Not much in potential receiver cuts
    As has been stated before, trading for a receiver in our situation probably isn't a very practical idea.  You're likely looking at trading for a three year contract when what you really want is a one year band-aid since Benjamin will be back next season and Funchess will have a year under his belt. So if anybody new is coming, it'll probably be someone found on the waiver wire after roster cuts.
    With that in mind, I took a (very quick and cursory) look at receiver depth charts around the league to see if there was anyone interesting on the bubble.
    The answer?  From what I can see, not much.
    Names like Greg Salas (who's on his fifth team) and former Panther Tavarres King (who was cut early last year) dot the landscape of 5s, 6s and beyond.  Not exactly exciting prospects.
    One name I did find mildly interesting: Tyler Murphy, a former QB from Boston College (started at Florida) who the Steelers are trying at receiver.  He's looked decent in preseason action but might not make the final roster.
    To be honest, if you were looking for a savior to come from other team's cuts, you were likely gonna be disappointed anyway.  Barring any surprises, the most you can hope for is depth, and even that prospect doesn't really appear to hold anything all that great.
    So basically, if you're waiting for someone to come in and make everybody forget Corey Brown, I wouldn't hold my breath.  Anything can happen, of course, but it looks highly unlikely.

    You don't think Redden's interception buys him a little more time?

    I can't believe I missed this story.
    Piper was one of the best ever, and both his ad-libbed line and the fight in 'They Live' line are classic.

    I'd say Todman is.  Fozzy is a matter of opinion.  He actually played well tonight.
    Runningback depth is probably where the toughest choices are gonna have to be made.

    I guess the question will be whether he's channeling Steve Smith or Keary Colbert.
    It is possible to recover from trouble like this, but it certainly isn't easy.
